I am currently a network engineer for a Health Care and Health Services provider in Las Vegas, NV.  I spent 5 years trying to break into the IT field before taking my first real position in 2004 as a system administrator for a local gaming company.  Since then, I have transitioned into networking and haven’t looked back since.

 I first attained my CCNA in 2001 and let it expire in 2004.  I re-certified in 2006.  This wordpress will cover my journey through the CCNP and hopefully the IE R&S, as well as any related work stuff.  My current employer is a Foundry shop, and that is providing me new opportunities for education, as well.

  1. Good afternoon,
    I work for Train Signal (www.trainsignal.com), a small IT company based
    in Chicago that specializes in creating video training on Windows, Cisco and VMWare networking topics.
    I came across your j”ust another Cisco Certification candidate blogging the journey” blog while doing some marketing research for our Cisco Courses, and am very impressed. I really enjoyed several of your posts. I am contacting you to today to see if you would be interested in taking a look at our new CCNA video training course (as well as our various CCNP courses if you desire). We are always looking for some feedback on our training courses and we would love to work with someone with as much expertise and passion as you have on this subject.

    I thought since your blog is relatively new, we could take the journey together. You could use our training to help you obtain your CCNP. I also think these courses would appeal to your target audience, as they are highly regarded by our customers and taught by a CCIE. They would be very helpful to anybody aiming for their CCNA, CCNP(like yourself) and eventually the CCIE. If you would like to take a look at our training, we will send you a copy of any of our Cisco courses for free. Also, feel free to look at our website for some more information regarding our company or our training products @ http://www.trainsignal.com. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    I’d be willing to take a look at your training materials for the NA/NP. I’m hoping that I won’t have to take the NA exam again, but I’d be more than happy to review it. As far as the NP goes, I’m currently working through Cisco press self study materials and stuff I find on the web.

  3. Hi Kintner,

    Your home lab is very impressive. I was thinking if you could share access on it to a CCIE candidate like me. I know it cost you some bucks to build that but I was thinking of your generosity. Thank you. Just a thought. . I can also a study partner.
